6. The Taybor

It's pretty lightweight stuff, and the sets and costumes are as over-the-top as Goddard's performance, but for all the crass jokes it has a certain charm. (Richard Houldsworth, TV Zone, 1993)

Frankly the performances by all involved is to say the least embarrassing. Ham is the dish of the day and it is served up in monster proportions. 6/10 (Anthony McKay, DWB, 1993)

Complete crap. An episode that only a Lost In Space fan could love. D- (Chris Bentley, SFX 20, 1996)

A light hearted and enjoyable romp that is a welcome change from the hard action adventures that had dominated 1999s early second season. Without such a threat to guide the story, there is plenty of time to feature delightful character scenes like the dinner party. (John Kenneth Muir, Exploring Space: 1999, p113)

A very Lost In Space like episode. ** (fair) (James O'Neill, Sci-Fi On Tape, p272, 1997)

The Taybor is very charming. It is fun. It is occasionally delightful, as with the trading sequence between Taybor and the Alphans. But, honestly, when a science fiction program attempts to become a comedy, it has to do better than this. 6/10 (Bob Wood, The Future Is Fantastic, 2001)
